Online or blended learning: which one is right for you?

Hero image

 

Here at Arden University, we’re dedicated to providing access to flexible learning for ambitious students here in the UK and around the world. We offer two study modes, both designed to give you the best possible higher education experience depending on your preferred way of learning and personal needs.

Blended learning

Students who prefer the structure of in-person lessons and who are able to attend fixed class-times find blended learning our most convenient mode of study. Blended learning gives you valuable face-to-face teaching twice a week at your chosen study centre, whilst maintaining the flexibility of 24/7 access to online learning materials for the remainder of your study schedule.

Online learning

Students who don’t live within easy reach of one of our study centres, who are studying with us from overseas, or who want to save on accommodation costs, find that online learning is the ideal way to gain their degree with us. Online learning gives you complete flexibility, and allows you to fit your degree studies around any other life commitments you have.

Below you can see a snapshot of what you’ll get from our blended and online learning study modes, to help you decide which learning style is right for you. 

You can also take our short quiz to find out more about what type of learner you are.

The learning style at Arden makes sense for me because of the flexibility, and it gave me the ability to make managerial decisions in my own business. I would highly recommend Arden University to anybody.
